    You would enter but you don't want to show them up. hehe
    My father could've won a saurkraut eating contest... back when
    Nathan's kraut (hot or cold) was help yourself he'd buy two dawgs and
    blanket them with a mountain of hot kraut, eat the kraut, and return
    for more some 20 times before ever biting into a dawg... was difficult
    getting him to leave so we could go home. And that was only a prelim,
    you should have seen him attack the kraut barrels at the old Red Apple
    Rest on NY Rte 17... my mom used to yell he'd put them out of
    business. In those days there were no automatic transmissions and
    many cars could only creep up the sqwurtzboro mountains in reverse
    without over heating.

    Are we there yet?

    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takeru_Kobayashi>

    Independence Day 2010 arrest

    On June 28, 2010, Kobayashi announced he would not compete in the
    Nathan's Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Competition reportedly due to a
    labor impasse with Major League Eating over the ability to compete in
    contests not sanctioned by MLE.[20]

    On July 4, 2010, Kobayashi was in attendance at the Nathan's
    International Hot Dog Eating Contest, watching from the crowd. Wearing a
    black T-shirt that read "Free Kobi", Kobayashi mingled with the crowd,
    standing inside a police-barricaded pen just under the stage. After the
    competition ended, he slipped up the stage stairs and crashed the stage.
    Although he was initially ushered by security officers up to the stage,
    one security officer (thought to have been requested by George Shea),
    quickly ushered him offstage as he resisted vehemently, hanging on to
    the barricades and fences before being taken into custody. Though some
    witnesses reported that Kobayashi was attempting to congratulate the
    winner, Joey Chestnut,[21] co-host and Major League Eating President
    Richard Shea, stated that "[Kobayashi] tried to jump on stage during the
    awards ceremony to disrupt it."[22] With the crowd chanting, "Free
    Kobi!" and "Let him eat! Let him eat!, police handcuffed him. He was
    charged with resisting arrest, trespassing and obstructing governmental
    administration and spent the rest of the 4th of July in jail awaiting an
    appearance in Brooklyn Criminal Court.[23]

    Kobayashi's interpreter and publicist, Maggie James said he had
    originally gone in hopes to cheer on his fellow competitive eaters, but
    after arriving and the chanting from the fans, he was swooped onto the
    stage from mere excitement. She said "There's a contract dispute, they
    weren't giving him his freedom, it was unfair" [24]

    Kobayashi told reporters he had a sandwich and a glass of milk while
    being held. "I am very hungry," he said. "I wish there were hot dogs in
    jail." [25]

    On August 5, 2010 all charges against Kobayashi were dismissed by a
    judge in Brooklyn.[26] Nathans removed Kobayashi's name from their
    record sign in 2011.[27]

    He only won because they kicked out the little Chinese guy for being
    "unruly" last year and he was arrested.

    I cannot help but feel this is so wrong in a world having so many
    problems
    with over eating & obesity, and in some places with starvation,
    including
    this country. I feel the same way about that tv show that shows guy
    pigging out. Just gross for starters and immoral and stupid for
    finishers.Nan in DE.

    Killjoy! Better you think about all the *serious* problems on this
    planet... like war, cancer, and more than I care to type. I once won
    an eggcream guzzling competion, sponsored by Sid's Lunchonette, Ave. P
    and E. 5th St... guzzled a 46 ounce eggcream in under a minute.

    Irony: Telling people to care about major world problems then
    immediately following that with a some personal bragging about being
    able to drink and egg cream in under a minute.

    Paul,

    She's an incredible eater. At 5'5" and 105 lbs., the fact that she ate 40
    hot dogs in 10 minutes with her small frame is utterly amazing.

    I guess the faster they get the hot dogs into the intestines the more
    they can eat. Heck, their poops afterwards are probably also world record
    worthy!

    Her food world records is a long list.

    The smallest amount of food she ever ate in 10 minutes to win a
    competition was _fruitcake_. She can eat twice as much lobster in
    that same 10 minutes.

    Which just supports my position (and yearly Holiday rant) that
    Fruitcake sucks! Even professional eaters can't eat that crap!
